ORGANIZATION: Benjamin Rose

Are you looking to volunteer with pets and their owners in your community? Through the Pet Assistance Linking Support (PALS) program, volunteers can make a positive difference in the lives of older adults and their companion animals!

If you are a compassionate volunteer looking to assist older adults with basic pet care tasks in their homes in Cuyahoga County, then we want you to volunteer with us! All volunteers receive free training and orientation on interacting with animals and older adults. By volunteering with this program, volunteers will enhance the well-being of both pets and their owners!

Types of pet care volunteers provide:

  • exercising and playing
  • interacting and socializing with pets and their owners

  • cleaning pet areas and bedding
  • cleaning up pet waste (ex., litterbox cleaning)

Join us in creating moments of joy and companionship!
